■ DIFFERENCES AMONG PESTICIDES, BIOSTIMULANTS & FERTILIZERS
First of all, biostimulant is not an agricultural hormone or plant growth regulator but the essence of natural products, derived from marine and terrestrial animals & plants and minerals.
Pesticides are defense weapons for crops and soil, including chemical, biological, living, and even physical. Their targets are diseases, insect pests and weeds that harm crops and soil.
Biostimulants are senior tonics with powerful physiological functions for crops and soil, and their targets are crops and soil themselves.
Fertilizers are "rice and porridge" for crops and soil, to supply basic food & warmness to crops & soil, and their targets are crops and soil themselves.
Biostimulants are more senior than fertilizers and need use together with fertilizers (meanwhile, dosages of fertilizers & pesticides can be reduced by about 10-30%), to grow good things better.
(The money saved by reducing the use of fertilizers and pesticides can basically offset the costs of biostimulants, that is, the total cost has almost no increase, but it can significantly obtain higher output, better quality and better price. Increasing the use of biostimulants is a profitable business but
not a loss business, with great social benefits.)
● General Definition of Biostimulants for Agriculture (By EBIC = TheEuropean Biostimulants Industry Council)
Agricultural Biostimulants include diverse formulations of compounds, substances and other products that are applied to plants or soils to regulate and enhance the crop’s physiological processes, thus making them more efficient. Biostimulants act on plant physiology through different pathways than nutrients to improve crop vigour, yields, qualities and post-harvest shelf life/conservation.
● Claims / Effects of Plant Biostimulants
Biostimulants foster plant growth and development throughout crop life cycle from seed germination to plant maturity in a number of demonstrated ways, including but not limited to:
1. Improving efficiency of plant metabolism to induce yield increases and to enhance crop quality;
2. Increasing plant tolerance to and recovery from abiotic stresses;
3. Facilitating nutrient assimilation, translocation and use;
4. Enhancing quality attributes of produce, including sugar content, colour, fruit seeding, etc.;
5. Regulating and improving plant water balance;
6. Enhancing certain physicochemical properties of soil and fostering development of complementary soil microorganisms.
● Types of Agricultural Biostimulants
Including but not limited to:
1. plant extracts (especially seaweed extract)
2. protein——→polypeptides——→oligopeptid——→amino acids; chitin——→chitosan/polysaccharides——→oligosaccharides; etc
3. humic acids/humates/fulvates
5. inorganic & artificial products
